Summer in the Balkans is brutally hot especially when you are walking over cobble-stoned medieval walkways and clamoring up hills amidst hordes of tourists. Miranda saw fans for sale in a souvenir shop and we spent 30 minutes picking out the perfect instruments. Wooden not paper or lace, hand-painted not appliqued. The shopkeeper gave us all discounts I think because we had to have been good for his business.

The fans did not, however, work so well outside in Mostar as they had in the shop. Which was air conditioned, we realized. Nice sales tactic.
